China has been quick to honor President Trump whenever he visits, but Trump hasn’t always been President Xi Jinping’s biggest fan. In fact, our leader has recently come down on them for allowing oil to be exported to North Korea, who has actively threatened the United States with a nuclear attack.
Maybe Trump’s statement can change their mind, but so far it seems like they are trying to play both sides of the fence here. I mean, an authoritarian government doesn’t just overlook the export of resources as precious as oil. They knew what was happening and allowed it. That cannot stand.
In a tweet Thursday, Trump said that he is “very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea,” claiming that such behaviors will prevent “a friendly solution” to the Pyongyang nuclear program. To be fair, I don’t think that a “friendly solution” has been on the table for quite a long time.
Caught RED HANDED – very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea. There will never be a friendly solution to the North Korea problem if this continues to happen!

“Caught RED HANDED,” he tweeted. “Very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea. There will never be a friendly solution to the North Korea problem if this continues to happen!”
Does this mean that China is helping North Korea develop and grow their nuclear arsenal so that they might benefit from a potential attack on countries like the United States? It stands to reason that North Korea would never be able to go toe-to-toe with us, but with backers like China, they might actually stand a chance. That would also explain why Kim Jong-Un has been so brazen with his threats and why China would be sucking up to the President, though that could be my inner conspiracy theorist at work.
The point is, China can either stand with us, or they can export oil to NK. They cannot do both. You can’t actively aid a country that wants us all dead and still claim to be our ally. There are no amount of dinners, or statues, or honorifics that can make up for that. You’re either with us or against us, and God help you if you stand against us.
What should Trump do to crack down on China and make sure this doesn’t continue to happen? Should anything be done, or should the U.S. let this go because they’ve been a good friend lately? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and have a wonderful day!
